The Marché de la Gare de Sherbrooke and the Queen Square will host a variety of free performances and activities throughout the festival. Find the award-winning musician Wesli, an artist from Port-au-Prince who mixes voodoo roots, afrobeat and hip-hop. He was named revelation of the year by Radio-Canada in 2009.

Jazz fans will love the show by Afri - Jazz, a passionate trio that infuses classic jazz songs and originals with their African heritage. These musical performances will be followed by discussions with the audience. An enriching experience for festival-goers as well as the artists themselves!
